I'm almost 30, can't really call myself part of the young generation anymore."Living fossils" was not a jab at the age of the players though, it's a metaphor for the people who don't really connect with the current trends. That doesn't even have to be a bad thing, but what it certainly means is that you cannot expect games to be made for you, because there's a severe disconnect between you and what the mass market wants. That thing about "goodwill" though... I don't need to generate goodwill in the first place, why would I? "Goodwill" is for people who want something from the establishment, but the Civ franchise already uses the combat system that I prefer. You're acting as if I have to be nice to you so you don't see me as this person who's just wrong and doesn't know what they're talking about, but really... feel free to think that. (Although again, "living fossiles" was not meant to be a jab in the first place.) What you're missing is that you're the ones who have to change minds and convince people that not improving the AI and solving the problems the 1upt system currently has is the solution, but a reversal back to the old system. And I'm even in the same position that you are in other games. I would LOVE the Elder Scrolls Series to go back to how Morrowind did Quests and Factions, with decisions that matter, instead of the dumbed down nonsense in the otherwise great Skyrim. But I realize most of the current players just don't like that. At the same time I realize that it would be nonsense to create threads like: "Has Skyrim ruined the Elder Scrolls Franchise?!", because it clearly hasn't. What they created resonated very well with the target audience, and the only real difference between this and "Stacks vs. 1UPT" is that the Skyrim systems work very well, while 1UPT still needs a lot of work. But the fact that it's not the "perfect iteration" yet doesn't lead to "so let's get back to the system that people don't want!"
